Press-Herald to Hire Somebody for a Change
PORTLAND – Work is available for at least one unemployed journalist, announced officials at MaineToday Media yesterday.
The Portland Press-Herald, Kennebec Journal, and Waterville Morning Sentinel each posted an announcement in its classified ads pages and on Craigslist, stating that they are seeking a “self-motivated, innovative thinker” who is “not afraid of a challenge” and “has no interest in travel.”
The advertisement goes on to mention that “no experience is necessary, though demonstrated knowledge of ethical journalism practices is a plus.”
Media analysts say this marks the first time a journalism job has opened up in Maine in about 14 years, which partially explains why there are so many obnoxious bloggers here.
Sources say the company has already received 3,821 inquiries about the posting.
